Child-custody bill: Limit court action while soldier-parents overseas - Pennsylvania

Child-custody bill: Limit court action while soldier-parents overseas


Pennsylvania soldiers sent into battle overseas would not have to worry about custody battles back home under a bill that cleared the Senate last week and moves to the state House.

Sen. Mike Folmer, R-Lebanon, sponsored the bill that would prevent courts from making permanent changes to custody arrangements involving the children of any serviceman deployed for active duty.

And when a soldier returns home, the bill would prohibit courts from siding against the serviceman on the grounds that his military duties are not in the child's best interest.

this is a wonderful idea for our brave women and men who fight on our behalf for freedom and justice. why in the world should they be penalized and their children be penalized? and when the battle comes in the court they should be concerned about these custody evaluations because Ira Turkat says they don't have enough scientific research. Our troops have to be careful in the battlefield and in the court room

But what about the civilian parent who has joint custody with the military parent being the primary residential. Does this mean that the non- custodial parent has no say as to where the child resides while the parent is overseas?

We are about to begin a documentary of what occurs when fathers and the legal system cross paths. Our hope is to reaching as many people possible, who are or have been involved in this issue. Word of mouth and networking is really the only way to gather the true stories needed to create the documentary.
If you are able to assist in this, please feel free to contact us or pass this message along.
Thank you;
Team Argus.

This is wonderful. Anyone serving in the military, and fighting the war on terrot, should not have to worry about fighting a second war at home. Kudos to PA for stepping up and doing the right thing.

Child custody issues are so touchy. There are few cases where one parent is definitively the better option. I'm glad this parent is getting a chance to fight for their kids. I hope in the future child custody can be come an issue that's more easy to understand.

Many an afternoon has been enjoyed by a family, bonding over the discussion of child custody. While it has been acknowledged that it has an important part to play in the development of man, it is yet to receive proper recognition for laying the foundations of democracy. It is an unfortunate consequence of our civilizations history that child custody is rarely given rational consideration by so called 'babies', obviously. Though I would rather be in bed I will now examine the primary causes of child custody.

During a divorce, child custody issues can be some of the most difficult to resolve. In most cases, a court will make the final decision on who has primary custody of the child, based on what the court feels is in the best interests of the child.If you need help about this matter then you can contact a grest experienced attorney in San Diego,California with Mr.Steven M.Bishop.

Thanks Meg, It was great to see that change in Child Custody. Service men and woman play a huge part in keeping our country safe. It would be interesting to see how these changes in child custody law have played out since then.
